CHAPTER I 



THE UPPER SCHOOL 



D 1 



|URING the past few years, or since the Middle School became a 
separate part of the school, in a building of its own and with its 
own student government, the three schools have been splitting 
apart. By this we mean that the same spirit of cooperation is rot there and 
that the people of the different buildings do not see each other enough to 
know each other well. The lack of people at the athletic contests is an ex- 
ample. The children of the two lower schools do not take so great an inter- 
est in what the High School does in athletics or anything else and this is felt 
to be a great loss to all three groups. The question is what can be done to 
remedy this. Many ways have been suggested, among them that of putting 
the Middle School back with the High School, or of joining the two govern- 
ments. We do not expect to be able to bring the old feeling of cooperation 
back right away for the school is larger and therefore it will be harder to 
get to know everybody and to take an interest in everything that goes on 
other than what one's own group does. However, during the year we think 
there has been a great improvement and there is every reason to believe 
that this improvement will continue in the future and that we will once 
more gain the old school spirit, of all of us being a whole and not three 
distinct bodies and of all of us working for the whole and not for ourselves 
and our group.

SENIOR RETROSPECT 



"WE HAVE RISEN" 



AS THIS, our Senior Year draws to an end, 
And we prepare to enter the common trend 
Of the high school grad to college days; 
We begin to look back on the precious daze 
That never will ever be lived once more, 
The trials and triumphs at old North Shore, 
The joys, the thrills, disappointments, chagrin, 
As we struggled upward and strove to win, 
We Seniors wish to give a word of advice 
And urge our successors to think more than twice 
Before you begin to talk back to the faculty 
Or try in vain to dress too immaculately 
Or break any windows, go around bragging 
About your abilities when there's something lagging. 
And we firmly believe that a word to the wise 
Is, in this case, sufficient, we firmly advise 
You to heed our warning in the manner it's given, 
Bearing in mind the heights to which we have r'sen.

A REVELERS REVELATION OF PROGRESSIVE EDUCATION 

IT HAS been our extreme pleasure to have graduated from an institu- 
tion which boasts the mysterious title of "Progressive Education." 
Just what this Progressive Education implies nobody seems to know. 
We have, however, bent our every effort and delved deeply into the matter. 
The "Education" part holds a small mystery in that it comes from the 
Latin, "Educo," to lead out, and education pounds things into our heads 
as no sledge hammer could. The real problem is in what the "Progressive" 
adds. We are told that the student who is so lucky as to be the prey of 
this phenomenon is made to love his work. That immediately brings up 
the question, "What is love?" The Senior Girls tell us that love is a feeling 
of strong personal attachment. An attachment is a connection. A con- 
nection is something that has something to do with something else. So 
Progressive Education has something to do with something else, Zoology 
no doubt. So we are treated as animals. (We certainly seem to be on 
the right track.) There are many kinds of animals. Some have four feet, 
others have many more, like bugs. People say some bugs are helpful, oth- 
ers aren't. Most people don't like bugs to crawl on them when they are 
asleep. Some don't mind because they sleep so soundly. There are many 
reasons why some can't sleep. Coffee, for instance, is very bad. We Sen- 
iors realize this and drink sodas (and things) . We all get them at Cooley's. 
There are three Cooley's but the other two are not so popular. There are 
also Coolies in China. They are yellow and wear their hair in long things 



-24— 



called cues. (Ah, here is a cue which is a clue to the mystery.) They love 
to drink tea in China though some prefer it in tin cups. The Seniors used to 
have tea at Leicester Hall, but now we don't. From the window of Leices- 
ter we could see all the trains go by. (Again we are on the track!) They 
go to Milwaukee. That is a Socialistic City which was looked upon with 
favor during the first decade of this century by Bob La Follette who was 
a Progressive ! He was the Adam of Progressive things and he's dead, 
but Progressive Education isn't, because it is that man's child, like Phil 
and young Bob. There we are ! Progressive Education is one of the La 
Follette boys, do you see?

JUNIORS 




CLASS 1935 




E COME to school and work all day 
We never have a time for play 
"You mustn't yell and scream. "They say, 
"You're Juniors now." 



The teachers all look very glum 
They say that we are much too dumb 
"And please remove your chewing gum, 
You're Juniors now." 

At leaving of our mirror out 

And putting lipstick on they shout 

"And please don't leave your books about, 

You're Juniors now." 

More and more comes the refrain, 
"It seems my words are said in vain. 
Please shut that locker door again. 
You're Juniors now." 

But these rebuffs we well do stand 
This strong and sturdy little band 
Will shortly fool the teachers, and 
Be Seniors now. 



-26- 



THE JUNIORS 

THE Juniors, it is said are the hardest working class, 
And as reward for all their work into college they shall pass ! 
With Taylor as their leader and Gilbert at the head 
They will face and conquer miseries of poverty and dread. 
The Mornipg Ex is one of these outstanding occupations 
Which the Junior class has added to its trials and tribulations. 
They revolutionized the Lunch Line, after quantities of trouble 
Until it ran right through its paces almost on the double! 
Out on the Athletic Field or in the Study Hall 
The Junior Class (What a class!) is always, "on the ball." 
The Girl's room on a schoolday is always full of static 
And on Mondays in advisory was simply, "Psychopathic." 
The boys upon the other hand were quiet, yet ferocious, 
And always looking for a chance to help Tuberculosis. 
And this was plain for on their door, as emblems of their might, 
One thousand thirty-five new Christmas seals stuck good and tight! 
Until the fateful day came round, when Wilfred with his knife 
Scraped with all his might and main those stamps away from sight. 
The Junior Prom then came around amidst a blaze of glory. 
The success of which we'll have to pass for it's far too long a story. 
The Jurior year is at an end, with its memories and knowledge, 
But still there lingers one main thought — "Where to go to college?"

The managements of the VAC- 
UUM SWEEPER and the SOPH- 
OMORE SCREECH are pleased to 
announce that they have merged 
into one newspaper in order to 
produce a larger and better paper 
and to dispense with unfair 
rivalry. 

Under our new management we 
hope to introduce a new and saner 
method of reading and writing. It 
has been discovered in our scien- 
tific laboratories that this writing 
may be read faster and strains the 
eyes less than any other type. We 
honestly believe that it will be in 
universal use within five years.

powerful, as they strike fear into

a plot to deceive the Sophomori 
and give them an examination" 
which ought to be beyond all hope

but to fight, struggle or hasten 3 to 
Florida for the purpose of avoid- 
ing 1 the examination.

I N THE village ef Winnetka, 

IL In the glorious time of fall, 

Came the Freshmen full of wonder, 
Ready for their studies all. 
Into Dunlap they came trooping, 
Into Dunlap to their hooks; 
Studied hard 'til dancing skeletons 
Turned all thought away from books. 
Their Christmas play unearthed new talents ; 
Held spectators awed by beauty rare, 
Rightly proud of their achievements 
Went they home without a care. 
From vacation's peaceful pleasures, 
From vacation's endless fun, 
Came the sleepless nights of worry; 
Came exam work to be done. 
Only strenuous hours of labor, 
Carried the Freshmen through this plight. 
"Little Women" held with gayness, 
Brought again the class to light. 
By the time the dance was over, 
All the classes did agree, 
Never would there be one like it 
In their North Shore's history.

CHAPTER II 



MIDDLE SCHOOL 



THE Student Government of the Middle School is organizing a 
new plan. The way it governed itself before was to have a town 
meeting in which ideas were passed. This did not work because 
the others would always be talking and there was not enough business 
to take up. 

The new plan is, that while the Upper School is having their town 
meeting, the Middle School will have small group meetings of the 
grades. This has many advantages, for instance when a person is voting 
he is not influenced by the others, and it makes less commotion and 
more things are discussed. The grades choose delegates to go to the 
meetings and discuss business with the other delegates. They then 
decide on it, and the delegates go back to the class group, and tell them 
what has been passed. There is going to be a Middle School town meet- 
ing only when there is business to be brought up. 

The Middle School is organizing a new government. There is a 
council which consists of eight students, selected by the others in his, or 
her, class. This council has written up two constitutions, of which we 
are to select one. We are, also, to select the way in which we want to 
run the government. 

The first way would be to have the council meet and take up mat- 
ters there, and then the representative from each class would report 
to his class. 

When there are things to vote on we will vote in our own rooms. 

The other way would be to have the council have a meeting some- 
time in the week, and then have a town meeting where the whole 
Middle School will meet. The council will bring up the matters there. 

The Middle School is putting in a new system of student govern- 
ment. Each section in the seventh and eighth grades have two represent- 
atives ; one boy and one girl, in the council. 

This council will meet every once in a while, and decide on rules 
necessary for the Middle School. These rules will not be passed though, 
unless the majority of the Middle School votes for them.

EIGHTH GRADE 



CLASS OF 1938 



THE MIDDLE SCHOOL TOPICS PRESENTS 

"What's News among the Newsyest of the News" in other words, 
"What's New in the Eighth Grade" 

AS WE look back through the records of the Eighth Grade Class 
of '34, we see what great things have been done and achieved. 
" Their achievements are great ( ? ) and they shall go down as 
an Eighth Grade that has learnt to do many things. A most industrious 
group to say the least. 

They now know, or should know anyway, how to make these great 
things: Pullman cars, vacuum cleaners, washing machines, roads, 
lagoons, soap, oleomargarine, bank checks and other groups of litho- 
craft. They also know how to skin a pig, lamb or steer. They know 
how to take out of these animals, intestines, livers and other such 
matter. 

All these things above and many more have been learnt by trips 
to stock yards, electric companies, C. C. C. Projects, Bank Note Com- 
panies and the Pullman Co. in the Eighth Grade. Other things were 
supposed to have been learned, among them these: How to Write and 
Take Movies, How to Raise Dogs, How to Plant Grass, How to Beautify 
the Face, How to Make a Home, How to Play Ball, How to Dance, How 
to Take Photographs, How to make Radios and many other interesting 
things. 

This last group of subjects has been taught during Activities, a 
new subject period, after Morning Exercises. Most astounding results 
have happened (in some cases).

DEATH NOTICES 



R. I. P. 



R. I. Pley would not believe that so many news enterprises could 
have been started and not finished. 

Proceeded by much publicity, and how, they died off suddenly. 
The names are : 

The Reflector 

This paper was put out by one of the editors of the following 
papers (P. Kuh). 

The Rival 

It got the original idea and came out first. It was small but full of 
newsy items. Editors, P. Kuh, M. Lynde. 

The Wolf 
It was very pretty, heralding New Year. Editors, Bell and Bull. 






The Reflecting Rival 

Heralded with publicity in a huge, quaint, unique way. It came 
out once, then the editor, J. Hart, quit. The other, B. Greenebaum, 
helped put out the only successful papers, "The White Star," first two 
copies. Then he put his efforts into the North Shore Film and Foto 
Club's wall newspaper of the same name.

SEVENTH GRADE 



CLASS 1939 



In this the third year of the Middle School, the Seventh Grade has 
established two magazines, The Leicester Press and the White Star. 
Each magazine has a staff consisting of an editor, writers, news, sports, 
and art editors, as well as proof readers. The staff is changed with 
each issue so as to give everybody a chance to do what he wants to. 
In each magazine there is an editorial, news of the Middle School and 
stories written by members of the Seventh Grade. These magazines 
are published periodically. We believe that they will be a big help in 
creating a new spirit of unity in the Middle School, as well as giving 
pupils a chance to work on a paper. The following are selections from 
the paper: 



WAR IS BREWING 

War is brewing between Russia and Japan. Russia has the advan- 
tage in air and on land. Japan has the advantage on water. The odds 
are very much against Japan. Russia has been trading grain for army 
supplies with the United States. Japan is training her women to be 
soldiers, but they will not have enough to fight Russia. Russia has 
forty-five thousand men in uniform, and many other thousands are 
ready to fight. Japan is getting too crowded, and needs more room. 
This is the reason why they will have to fight. They must have more 
land. 



—36— 



ACTIVITIES 



CLASS OF 1939 



The Middle School is starting a new period. Activity period is 
right after morning ex. There are many different kinds of activities 
which are play, sewing, typing, movie talks, radio talks, sketching and 
animal raising. In animal raising the group are going to get some 
puppies. Many people approve of this period. 



Sunday, April 8th, at 1:15 A.M., there was an automobile acci- 
dent. A four year old Buick was parked at the side of a road when an 
old Dodge came along at about fifty miles per hour. It crashed right 
into the Buick. Awful moans were heard. Just then some of the neigh- 
bors came out to see what had happened. They found two women and 
one man. The two women were hurt very badly, one of them was all 
cut up with glass and the other woman's leg was also cut and she 
couldn't walk. A few seconds later the police arrived. The woman 
that was hurt the more had to be carried into the police car. The man 
who was driving the Dodge was arrested for driving while drunk.

He struck her 

Again and again, 

But she emitted no sound, 
Not so much as a murmur. 
With a strangled oath 
He attacked her anew. 
Savagely he rained 
Blow after blow. 
At last she could 
Stand no more. 

With a reluctant sigh 
She sputtered and 
Burst into flame 
For you see 

She was only a match.

CHAPTER III 



THE LOWER SCHOOL 



THE activity of the Lower School centers around learning to live 
in a group, especially through their social studies. 

The Kindergartners spend most of their time learning to 
live with each other, and in getting acquainted with the school sur- 
roundings. The First Graders, beside learning to read during the sec- 
ond half of the school year, find out how the village life is conducted. 
They visited some of the stores in Winnetka, and have made a model 
store in class. They raised or are raising things sold in stores, like 
honey and garden products. The Halloween play is given by the Second 
Grade, who widen their studies to include the peasant life of all nations, 
while the Third Grade returns to America and Indian life. A lot of the 
Third Grade's reading is done about Indians; they work on things which 
the Indians used to make; and they usually give several plays to the 
school about Indian life. 

Fourth Graders study the life of the Ancient Greeks. This year 
they produced a Greek play about Ulysses in Phaeacia, which they gave 
to the school just before Spring Vacation. The Fifth Grade studies 
about another nation, the Vikings. Later they read about the Mediaeval 
Period in Europe, and especially King Arthur and his court. The May 
Day play is the result of their work. The Sixth Grade continues the 
Middle Ages into the period of exploration of the Western Hemisphere 
and of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The most important thing the 
Sixth Graders did was to make a study of civilization in Central and 
South America before the coming of the white men; and of the Spanish 
Conquest.

THE -&» HUNDRED 
|N THE tenth of February, 1519, eleven small ships set out from 
the harbor of Havana. Aboard the ships were 16 horses, 32 
crossbows, 13 muskets, and 4 falconets. The purpose of the 
armada was to found a christian colony in the mainland to the West, 
which two earlier scouting expeditions had located, and a more im- 
portant purpose was to find gold. Hernando Cortez was the Captain 
of the fleet. The end of the Peninsula of Yucatan was sighted and 
landing parties were put to shore. The natives were unfriendly and 
gold could not be found. 

The fleet sailed west again until the great snowv cone of Orizaba 
came into view. There they disembarked. The little army pitched 
camp on top of the dunes, and swore and sweltered for many days. 
Then Montezuma sent a great cacique to Cortez, who brought many 
presents of gold. The rank and file grumbled and soon demanded a 
return to Cuba. Some Totonacs came to the Spanish camp one day when 
Montezuma's people were absent. From them Cortez learned Mexico 
was not united, and there were nations who hated the Aztecs. With 
this information in hand he gave orders, and while the little army 
looked on in horror its ships went up in flames. That settled the retreat 
to Cuba. Then Cortez bound the Totonacs to him and gathered a native 
army of porters and warriors from the tributary states, and began to 
march on the Capital. 

When he got to the country of the Tlaxcalans he found they hated 
the Aztecs, but did not like the Spaniards either, so they had a fight. 
They finally joined Cortez. Next he conquered Cholula. He continued 
his journey to the gates of Mexico City, and met Montezuma face to 
face. The Spaniards were invited into the city. Montezuma was cap- 
tured and the Aztecs did not dare to attack, being afraid of hurting 
their king. Panfilo de Narvaez arrived at Vere Cruz to capture Cortez, 
Cortez marched down and defeated him. When he returned he found 
the garrison left behind was being attacked. The Spaniards made 
Montezuma get up to quiet his people. He was killed by them. On 
the "Noche Triste" 2000 men sought to hack their way from the city, 
but only a few escaped the furious Aztecs. The Spaniards retreated 
to Tlaxcalan where they rested and reenforced. They returned. In 
May, 1521, the siege began. Food and water were cut off. After 85 
days of fighting on land and on the lake Mexico fell, and a great civili- 
zation passed into history.

HEN the Vikings went to battle 
They often stole a herd of cattle. 
A Viking never sought to flee, 
But preferred to fight upon the sea. 



W-' 



Oh, their boats were ever so frail, 
But in them to other lands they'd sail. 
From another Viking they'd never steal, 
Or afterwards very sorry they'd feel. 

Whenever they fought, they always won. 
They thought that fighting was loads of fun ! 
Lots made the Viking king a plea, 
They said, "You're much to strong for me." 



II 

A Viking was a Norseman 

Who had a mighty hand, 

Who went around and plundered 

Any kind of land. 

In his little boat, he sailed across the sea. 

Sailing such a tiny barque would frighten you or me! 

The Vikings loved to fight in war, 

And when they won, they wanted more.

to cover the black- 
boards when they 
were not being used. 
We drew flowers, 
made a stencil, traced 
the designs on the

them with crayons. 
The flowers were 
white water lilies, 
blue bells, yellow and 
brown sunflowers, 
saffron colored tulips 
and purple iris. 
These hung in the big 
room. We also made 
a border for the lit-

cardboard Animals 
and colored them in 
natural colors. They 
were : a swan, a hip- 
popotamus, a souir-

Dear Hill: 

How are you? When are you coming back? We gave the Lin- 
coln Play. I was the dog and I was in Act 1 and Act 2 and Act 3. My 
costume was brown and white. My name was Honey. I looked like 
Here. I studied the habits of dogs so that I would be a good dog and 
everyone said I was a good dog. Did you read, "Abe Lincoln, the 
Frontier Boy"? I thought that was a good book. Get well soon. We 
miss you. We are sorry you didn't see the play. 

Gerry. 
Dear Hill: 

I was almost put out of the play because I was sick until the day of 
the play and I just got back in time. I did not have a very big part but 
it was big enough because I had to learn it in one morning and it wasn't 
easy. You see Kendall was absent and I took his part. David had been 
practicing his part with Kendall so much that he knew his part too. He 
told me what to say. I was Stephen Douglas and David was Abe Lin- 
coln. We debated. Lincoln was against slavery. I was for slavery. 

Love, Bobby. 
Dear Miss Rood : 

Thank you for the nice letter you wrote us. When we first came to 
the third grade we studied about Indians. We all made costumes and 
the girls wove such pretty belts. We have all finished except Ann 
Gregory and Cynthia Burnham. We gave a morning ex on Indians in 
December. Now we are studying about Pioneers. In shop we are mak- 
ing pioneer things. Peter is making the big rope bed. Anna and I are 
making the trundle bed. Walther has the table almost done. We are 
making the little room into a pioneer house. We have a pioneer exhibit 
in there now. We have a chair that is 150 years old, a bed warmer, a 
wheel barrow and lots of other things.

Switzerland 

WITZERLAND is a very small country. It has no oceans around it 
because other lands are around it. The country is very rocky and 
has many mountains. The mountains are called "The Alps" which 
means, "pasture." The Swiss people do not eat much meat. They eat 
lots of vegetables and fruit and drink goat's milk. They make cheese and 
send it all over the world. They have lots of winter sports. They make 
many watches, cookoo clocks and music boxes to sell to the visitors. 

The Tale of a Little Goat 

Once there was a little goat that lived on a mountain. He lived 
with a little boy. His name was Billy. One day he wanted to climb a 
mountain so he went to the hut and asked his master if he could go to 
the mountains and climb the mountains. And his master said very 
kindly, "Yes you may go to the mountain and climb the mountain." 
Then he took his goats and went to the Matterhorn. He looked and 
looked at it. Then he tried and tried and tried and made it. When he 
got to the tip top of it they looked around. Then they started to go 
and when they reached the hut Billy ate his bread and went to bed and 
dreamed. 

The Boy and the Lost Goat 

Once there was a little goat and he had no home. He wandered 
around and far, far away. There was a little boy. He wanted a goat. 
His father said he could have a goat but they did not have any money. 
One day the boy went for a walk on the mountain. The little lost goat 
was looking around. Soon he saw the boy. The boy took the goat home. 

A Poem

With their colored dresses 

So pretty and gay 

The wind tossed and played all day.

THE STORY OF THE QUEEN OF HEARTS AND OUR VALENTINE 

PLAY 



W! 



E WENT to all the boys and girls in School. We asked them 
to come to our Valentine Party. We asked the boys and girls 
to make favors for our party. We asked them to learn a dance 
for our party. We played the Queen of Hearts at our Valentine Party. 
The Knave of Hearts stole the tarts and the King was very angry. He 
beat the Knave full sore. So then the Knave never did that again. The 
picture shows the King and Queen. The guards are standing beside the 
throne. The whole school is there at the Valentine Party. 



If I had a hill 

As high as the sky, 

I'd climb as high 

As the birds can fly 

Then I'd go zooming down 

Until I struck the ground 

Flowers grow in the summer time 

But when the snow comes 

Flowers are dead. 

When summer comes back again, 

The birds sing, 

And the flowers come back again, 

And the trees turn green again, 

And the winter is over. 



Spring is here 
Flowers are blooming 
Birds are flying far 
Wind is out 
When winter comes 
Jack Frost is flying 
In the air 

Birds are flying in the air 
While the wind is blowing 
And the world is bare 
And the ducks are swimming 
In the water. 



Our Store 
We made the counter. We made the shelves. 
We will sell real things in our store.

CHAPTER IV 



INSTITUTIONS 



IN the early part of the year a committee of the younger students 
generally organizes the annual Vacation Fair which is an exposition 

of the results of the preceding vacation. It is here that all hobbies 
are exhibited and the scope of interest is extremely wide. There are 
stamp and coin assortments, airplane and boat models, drawings and photo- 
graphs, and butterfly and firearm collections. When it is run on a strictly 
home-made basis the fair has a very beneficial effect. We hope this valu- 
able phase of school life may be continued in the future. 

The Santa Claus Party comes shortly before Christmas vacation 
period. The toys made and repaired in the Toy Shop are placed on exhibit 
in the Boy's Gym. The whole school assembles during Morning Exercise 
time and, after appropriate Christmas songs, the yule log is brought in. 
"The Night Before Christmas" is read to the Kindergarten and all of a 
sudden in comes Santa Claus. He inspects the toys, and is led to a throne 
which has been prepared for him. All the faculty and students do dances 
in his honor. The toys are then taken down to the city and distributed 
among the children of needy families. 

The Valentine Party, as one might suspect, comes on Valentine's day. 
Like the Christmas Party it is held in the Boy's Gym. After singing, 
the first grade gives a play of the Knave of Hearts which is followed by 
dances of the whole school in honor of the King and Queen of Hearts. 

May Day is celebrated late in the month of May. A May Queen is 
elected from among the Senior Girls. The school marches to the green, 
each class proudly carrying a banner representing itself. Songs are sung 
and the May Queen enters, followed by a long train of followers. The 
whole place is garlanded with flowers. The May Queen is crowned and 
the classes dance some simple dances before her on the green. When all 
is over, picnics underneath the spreading trees are in order. A play 
usually accompanies the ceremonies, the motif of which is some aspect 
of spring. 

Field Day sometimes comes on the afternoon of May Day, and then 
again, sometimes it doesn't. The school is divided up into two teams, 
the Purples and the Whites. They compete in track events and baseball. 
The day usually is brought to a close by a hardball game between the 
fathers and sons.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 



RESUME 



AS last year, the Student Government was divided into three assem- 
^ blies, the Upper School, Middle School and Lower School. The 
faculty remained out of the Upper School meetings and for the 
first two quarters business was transacted with a fair degree of efficiency. 
A new financial plan was put into effect and the monetary affairs ran 
smoothly on. A dance code was presented and passed. There seemed, 
however, to be a lack of interest on the part of the students. Several of 
the committees were not working at all efficiently. At the same time the 
faculty was justly desirous of having a voice in the government. It seemed 
the government needed a thorough reforming and shaking up. A small 
group saw this and after a great deal of discussion drew up a new consti- 
tution. Before this constitution was presented to the assembly, the elec- 
tions for the officers for the third term came along. There was some 
excitement, a few people got especially excited and got the faculty some- 
what disturbed. The matter was quickly settled by the students and 
everything went on as before, without any trouble. The constitution was 
presented and passed by the student assembly with the provision that it 
should go into effect as soon as it was approved by the faculty and the 
Middle School. For a long time nothing was done. Finally the assembly 
provided for a committee to confer with the faculty. That is the way 
matters stand as this goes to press. What will happen nobody can tell, 
but it is quite certain that we will continue on our way toward a more 
interesting and effective government. 

The Middle School Student Government passed out of existence due to 
the lack of efficiency. Towards the end of the year thy developed a new 
form of government that they felt was more adapted to their needs. The 
first meeting was a great success.

THE PURPLE AND WHITE 



PROGRESS 



THIS year the Purple and White continued in magazine form and 
appeared monthly. The policies of the previous year were carried 
over and the Lower School section remained. The Alumni Associa- 
tion inserted the Alumni Bulletin in five issues. An important factor in 
the success of the Purple and White this year was a faculty column known 
as "Other Things Being Equal," contributed by a prominent member of 
the faculty. A column known as "The North Shore Line" was also intro- 
duced to furnish the readers with the lighter side of the news. This 
year more of the magazine was written by people not connected with the 
staff than ever before. The year was also characterized by the excel- 
lent work done by the Purple and White staff photographer, who at times 
was to be seen prowling about on the roofs in his attempts to "get the 
picture." 

The board of editors this year consisted entirely of members of the 
senior class. In order to find talent to carry on next year, the May issue 
was given over completely to the sophomore journalism class, which put 
out an excellent issue. The June issue was without any question the high- 
water mark of the Purple and White's career, and it is hoped that next 
year's board will continue to improve the magazine and not allow the 
interest to wane. The staff is as follows : 



John Macy 
Roger Ballard, Jr.

TOY SHOP 



ITS ACTIVITIES 



THE TOY SHOP this year was a great success. There were, as 
usual, a number of departments each to take care of one branch 
of the organization. To begin with, there was the wood depart- 
ment. This received and repaired numerous toys brought in by the pupils. 
Everyone showed great willingness to work and a great deal was ac- 
complished. The tin soldiers' department made a great many of them, 
and very expertly at that. The canned goods department because the 
students were slow in bringing in their cans waged a great advertising 
campaign, the result being that the full quota was attained before the 
deadline. The paint department located in the scenery room worked very 
efficiently painting the toys turned out by the wood and other depart- 
ments. The doll department accomplished a great deal of work due to 
the efforts of a large number of the upper school girls. The game depart- 
ment started out slowly at first, but after several pleas for aid was soon 
crowded with eager workers. The Lower School children, working in their 
own shop, made and painted assorted toys under the direction of Mr. 
Whitby. The parents again assisted willingly. The Sophomores and 
Juniors came with their parents, and after a picnic supper in the lunch 
room spent the evening working in the various departments of the Toy 
Shop. The finished toys, the food, and the clothes produced a fine array 
when spread out in the Boys' Gym at the Christmas party for Santa 
Claus' inspection. Santa, needless to say, was very much pleased and the 
entire school might well feel happy that they brightened the Christmas 
of many needy families.

CHAPTER V 



ATHLETICS 



THIS year the policy of required exercise was followed out and the 
beginning of school found all able-bodied persons of dear old N. S. 
straining themselves in either football or hockey. The many long, 
tiring hours of practice were well spent and bore full fruit in the follow- 
ing games. Both the football and hockey teams had very successful 
seasons and everyone took full advantage of the opportunity for broaden- 
ing oneself. After the Christmas holidays, interest was centered on bas- 
ketball. A new schedule was introduced with an extra period added to 
each day. A daily gym period was inserted and, after school, play was 
made voluntary. Because of this innovation and various other extra cur- 
ricular activities, the number of people out for the teams dropped off con- 
siderably. Though the boys season was not a success, reckoned from games 
won and lost, it was a fine test of the spirit of the team. At no time did 
they give up and at the conclusion of the season they were able to see the 
value of what they had done. The results of the girls' season were more 
bright. They won three out of four games and showed remarkable en- 
thusiasm and considerable ability. 

In the spring the same eight period schedule was used that we have 
had for several years. Baseball, either hard or soft, and track are the 
two fields to which a student may turn to give vent to his athletic tend- 
encies. Because of this option, and the other spring activities compara- 
tively few boys have gone in seriously for hardball. In spite of this 
several games have been scheduled and everyone has high hopes for 
the team. The free afternoons afford a chance for participation in many 
out of school functions such as golf, tennis, riding, an opportunity for 
hearing concerts and plays, an exceedingly valuable period just before 
exams.

FOOTBALL 



HIGHLIGHTS 



THE first few days of school in September found the largest number 
of boys out for football that we have ever had. Of these over ten 
had had considerable experience the year before and the lighter 
teams had yielded quite a crop of talent. So it was with a fairly bright 
outlook that the team began its practice. The spirit of competition was 
keen and the feeling that there was someone ready and eager to step into 
every position was distinctly advantageous to the manner in which the 
team conducted itself. The policy of frequent substitution was carried 
out throughout the season, and next year will find even wider range of 
experienced men. It is difficult to over-emphasize the importance of the 
second and third teams in the development of any squad. In a school of 
our size this fact is even truer than in a larger institution. 

The team was fairly well balanced as far as weight and speed were 
concerned. Several heavy gentlemen in the middle of the line centered 
the weight there. On the ends weight gave place to speed. The backfield 
possessed considerable elusiveness and passing and kicking abfitv. 

After several weeks of conscientious work we went into action against 
a very much lighter team from Evanston High. The score was 41 to 
and at no time was there any doubt as to the outcome. The game served 
as excellent practice and everyone was given a chance to play under game 
conditions. This success gave us enough confidence to play a good game 
against Harvard in the pouring rain with four inch lakes in the middle 
of the field. The score was 18 to 0. On the next Friday afternoon against 
Niles Center the team did not function nearly as well. We managed, 
however, to come out on the winning side with a score of 14 to 0. 

The game we most wanted to win, that with Milwaukee, was scheduled 
for the next Saturday. On that day the North Shore hockey and football 



—54- 



teams entertained the Roycemore hockey and the Milwaukee teams at 
lunch. The day was ideal, yet the team seemed to lack that extra something 
that would have given us a victory. The game ended 18 to 12. Our 
two scores were made during the last seconds of each half in some frantic 
moments of play. The Milwaukee team was, as usual, a strong aggrega- 
tion. We were greatly disappointed as we had felt that our chances of 
winning this year were fairly good and we can only hope that next season 
may bring better luck. Our last and only away from home game we 
played at Latin. The playing was sufficiently strong to insure our winning 
and as a result everybody enjoyed themselves thoroughly. The final score 
was 40 to 0. 

On November 27th the annual football dinner was given. There was 
an attempt made to place the responsibilities of the arrangements for 
this more in the hands of the students. The policy met with some ap- 
proval and it might well be considered in next year's plans. The dinner 
was a decided success with a large attendance, excellent addresses by Dr. 
Harkness, Mr. Smith and members of the alumni and the usual short but 
pithy remarks from the captains. From both the point of view of games 
won and lost and of the experience and enjoyment gained by all, the season 
may be considered to have been very successful. 

The activities of the lighter teams are always an important part of 
the football program. This year there has been no falling off in this 
respect. Under the able guidance of Messrs. Taylor, Lund, Wilder and 
Millett the teams carried out a schedule of their own which included 
several games with Skokie and numerous scrimmages among themselves. 
There was a quantity of football learned and we, from the sidelines, noted 
with pleasure the development of some very promising material.

HOCKEY 



VARSITY 



THIS year the hockey squad was divided up into three groups. At 
the top was the Varsity squad, below them the Junior varsity, com- 
posed of the players with a little experience, below them were 
"the Beginners" from the 7th and 8th grades. Each of these groups was 
divided into teams which played each other in practice games. Miss By- 
grave and Miss Ferry were the main coaches and under them were about 
eight girls of several years experience who helped coach the 7th, 8th and 
9th grade players. The main job of these students was to help the be- 
ginners in stick work and technique until they were able to play a good 
game. 

The Varsity had a very good season. It was decided that first and 
second team games with other schools were the most desirable so when- 
ever possible this was arranged. However, Evanston High School was 
played with mixed teams, Marywood by class and the Freshmen played 
both the "Women's Town and Country Club" and Kemper Hall. The first 
1st team game was with the Indian Hill women's team, which North Shore 
won 1-0. Roycemore was played twice, the first scores being 1-0 and 2-0 
while the second team scores with Roycemore were 0-2 and 1-1. In the 
Latin games the 1st team score was 3-0. The much dreaded Carl Shurz 
teams were turned back to the tune of 2-0 by the 1st team and 5-0 by 
the 2nd. 

Although the teams started out rather weakly, by the end of the sea- 
son there was a decided improvement. The climax of the year were the 
games with the boys, who defeated the first team 1-0. The second team, 
however, held the boys to a 1-1 tie. The boy's goal against the first team 
was the only goal scored against that team throughout the season. 

The outlook for the next year isn't as bright as it might be because 
of the loss of this year's seniors — but, while there's life there's hope.

I HOUGH hardly a successful season there is no doubt that it was 

_\_ well worth while because of the development and experience it gave 
to the younger players. Several boys were unable, for various 
reasons, to participate at all and with these a much more heartening season 
may be expected. The lower grades were organized into a number of 
teams and the seventh and eighth grades played several games with Skokie 
with excellent results. A certain amount of practice was given the fifth 
and sixth grades through regular after school games.

BASKETBALL 



GIRLS 



THIS year we are very happy to say that the girls' basketball season 
was very successful. At least we think so and we hope that some 
agree with us. The squad was divided up into the customary first 
and second teams and games were arranged as soon as and with as many 
schools as possible. In all we had only three encounters, but this was 
due to the fact that we stuck strictly to the policy of playing only varsity 
games. Also, though we tried to arrange two games with the schools we 
did play, we discovered that they were allowed only a few outside games 
and not more than one game with the same school. 

We had had but little practice when we met our first and greatest 
adversaries, the Carl Schurz teams. Some believe we did our best playing 
in this game, . . . but then it's a matter of opinion. We would ratker 
not repeat the score, though we will tell you we were not half bad. Our 
next struggle was with the girls from Roycemore, but it was not as bad 
as we thought it was going to be and we came from the fray victorious. 
The first team's score was 45 to 11, the second team's 27 to 26. The last 
game was with the Latin School and again we proved our prowess. The 
first team won 51 to 22 and the second team 39 to 20. 

Many more people had a chance to play this year and we feel that 
more was gotten out of it. The spirit was extremely good and there was 
much interest.

THE highlight of the theatrical season at North Shore was the 
Senior Class play — "The Rivals" — by Richard Brinsley Sheridan, 
which was the very wise but tardy choice of the class. It took 
them some time to decide on what play to give, and, by the time it was 
"11 settled, only four weeks remained before the date set for the per- 
formance. Further complications ensued when changes in the cast were 
made, and several of the leading characters became ill. However, these 
clouds soon disappeared off the thespian horizon; with the able help 
of Mr. Smith, Mr. Macy and Miss Radcliffe as coaches and directors, 
and due to the fine, self-sacrificing spirit of the cast, everything went 
off very well. Those members of the class who were not in the play, 
designed, made and shifted the scenery under the direction of two stage 
managers, one for the cast and one for the crew. Many of the parents 
very kindly loaned some of their most valuable antiques of the period 
with which to grace the stage. Needless to say, the financial wizards 
of the class made it a success in that respect, and it was due to the fine 
management of the whole play financially that the Seniors presented 
the school with the new sidewalk. 

The Freshmen also scored an artistic triumph when they presented 
the annual Christmas Play. Throughout the play, one was impressed 
by the beauty, and great strength of the characters in their acting 
ability. A Heavenly choir, conducted by that Archangel, Mr. Ramsay 
Duff, rose to sublime heights of song in their chorals. It is worthy of 
note that The Archangel composed some of the music for the afore- 
mentioned chorals. 

The Sophomore Dramatic Club, after many long weeks of arduous 
rehearsal, presented a play called "Crabbed Youth and Age." This was 
extremely well acted and directed. This play shows that a more serious, 
creative, dramatic interest is developing among the lower classes. 

The Washington, Lincoln, Hallowe'en, Thanksgiving and Easter 
Plays were all well presented by the Lower and Middle Schools. The 
Easter play was exceptionally good in its treatment of Easter modified 
by a Greek influence, although the costumes were not entirely in accord 
with the description given by Homer.

OPERA 



THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE 



THIS year the High school in all its departments presented as its 
annual Gilbert and Sullivan opera "The Pirates of Penzance, or 
the Slave of Duty," a highly complicated tale of Pirates, Police- 
men, a Major General and his daughters and an overwhelming sense 
of duty. It is one of the most colorful of the light operas both in its 
music and the possibilities of costumes and settings. The sets were, 
as usual, designed and constructed under the supervision of the Art and 
Shop Departments by the students, and great credit is due to them for 
the remarkable results. A general simpleness that was very effective 
was used throughout. A new system of spotlights from the audience 
was employed with some success. A talented committee of mothers in 
collaboration with the Art Department, giving unsparingly of their 
time, turned out strikingly beautiful costumes. They used bright colored 
sweaters and old shirts dyed every imaginable hue with great effect. 
The girls' costumes were masterpieces of design and color combination. 
Though some of the principals had rented costumes, the majority were 
strictly home made. The importance to the production of the work of 
these mothers and the mothers who organized and carried out the make- 
up end of the job cannot be over emphasized. In previous years the 
orchestra was one hired from Chicago with whom we were able to 
rehearse only once and who though their playing was flawless could 
hardly be expected to take any real interest in us. This year, however, 
the orchestra was made up of members of the High School Orchestra 
and various North Shore performers who were acquainted with the 
school. In this manner we were able to practice quite regularly with 
at least a part of the orchestra. This was a complete success and we 
can only hope that it may continue in the future as it seems to make the 
opera more fully our own.

There was a large number of people trying for leads at the start 
and Mr. Smith and Mr. Duff had some difficulty in choosing from the 
wide field of good voices. The chosen ones immediately set to work 
and several get-togethers were held at Mr. Duff's home. The choruses, 
larger than ever, began their practice in the two weekly chorus periods. 
Having learned their songs, they were put on the stage and put through 
a series of intricate and very effective gyrations under the able and 
spirited guidance of Miss Amy Bygrave. The chorus parts were 
scattered more than usual with little figures and gestures requiring 
united action. Several Saturday morning sessions were held and the 
work progressed. The dress rehearsal was held the Wednesday before 
the performance and after having a picnic supper we worked on into 
the evening, ironing out the bad spots. The Thursday afternoon per- 
formance was given with some gusto though it was lacking a little in 
finish. Friday night was excellent and the Saturday production was 
equally good. The whole opera easily came up to the standard set in 
previous years and the fun and benefit derived from it, we venture to 
say, was no less. 



THE VAUDEVILLE 



A VAUDEVILLE is given each year by the students in the High 
School in order to obtain the odious but necessary financial back- 
ing to meet the expenses of the projects manfully undertaken 
by the students during the school year. Under the subtle leadership 
of Ogden Hannaford, many acts, originally and cleverly presented and 
directed, went to make up one of the most successful and one of the best 
(without exaggeration) Annual Vaudevilles that has ever been presented 
by our school. 

Two talented members of the school presented "Frivolous Formalities," 
a bit of interpretative dancing, which was the occasion for wild burst of 
applause at the conclusion of the act. Some Sophomore Girls gave a 
sketch called the "Badly Built House" having puns in it. Mr. Duff played 
the piano in the way which won for him his reputation, by rewriting his 
score, and transposing the top note one half tone lower, with dire results 
on the ears of the patient audience. A quartette made up of talented high 
school boys songs like "Rum-bum-bum, We're Bound For Australia," "Ha- 
OOza-frayed of The Big Bad Wolf?" and "Rolling Down to Rio." These 
songs were so popular that the audience was heard humming the tunes as 
they left after the performance. The Junior Boys showed their appreciation 
and perception of the finer things in life in their lusty and gustive inter- 
pretative presentation of an ancient Greek tragedy entitled "Nervus Rex," 
which filled the house with mirth and laughter. Two Senior Boys, in or- 



—61— 



der to show that they too had artistic leanings, exhibited a remarkable 
specimen of nude bovinism. The Great Tut astounded all with his mighty 
feats of magic, taking eggs out of watches and versa vice-very messy, 
verry messy. The faculty had an act. And then the gentlemen of the 
Freshmen Class presented a very, very funny play — "The John Ridell 
Murder Case" — very, very funny indeed we are told by the Freshmen Boys. 
It was in some vague way connected with tennis shoes, worn on left foot 
only, which as you can see, was very, very funny. One of the most ingeni- 
ous and striking acts was that of the Freshmen Girls. It was a grave- 
yard ballet, a dance of the skeletons, which was really very well done. 

After the Vaudeville, the Sophomores gave their dance in the Girls' 
Gym, which was gaily decorated, only the decorations could not be seen, 
because of the small amount of illumination given off by the blue lights. 
There, all who came danced until the dawn stars burned away. That is to 
say until about 11:30. Then, each and every tired little body tumbled 
wearily onto their couches and laid themselves down to rest after the ball 
was over. A triangle is a three sided figure. 



SOCIETY 



THE social highlif e of the year started off at the beginning of school 
with the Senior Dance, which was given in honor of the Freshmen, 
to welcome them into the High School. The orchestra was good, and 
the decorations were ingenious. Those brilliant Seniors lighted the 
Girls' Gym with blue lights, so that little or nothing could be seen, which 
may or not have been an advantage. The same system was used by the 
Sophomores in their dance following the Vaudeville, proving the in- 
genuity and value of the idea. By way of refreshments, the Seniors 
had a huge keg of cider in the middle of the floor which was capably 
and well attended to by a portly looking barkeep with a magnificently 
curling moustache. 

The Seniors, Juniors, and Sophomores organized a dancing club, 
which was supervised by a committee of pupils in collaboration with a 
group of parents, who very kindly acted as chaperons. There was a ten 
piece orchestra for every dance, and they were well attended. Every 
one was sorry when the last, taking place in the early part of May, was 
finally over in a fanfare from the orchestra. 

The Freshmen also organized their dances and held them every 
two or three weeks during the year at the Winnetka Community House.

Although, strictly speaking, the Senior Play, "The Rivals," should 
be discussed in the Drama section, it was the occasion of such a brilliant 
assemblage of social lights that it was thought essential that it should 
be included in this section. The very distinguished company of the play 
acted before a positive glare of white shirt fronts, and the elite were 
pleased to show their approbation of the fine acting by great applause. 

The Freshmen Dance was a very sporty affair, as they carefully 
pointed out. The walls of the Girls' Gym were decked out like Aber- 
crombie & Fitch, or Von Lengerke & Antoine. Skis, snowshoes, and 
toboggans were in great abundance although the weather was warm 
and temperate. 

All in all, the High School had a very successful social season, and 
every one had a good time.
